Summary "Sometimes called the "miracle diet," the ketogenic diet has helped doctors treat difficult-to-control epileptic seizures in thousands of children. Coauthored by four respected Johns Hopkins clinicians, Ketogenic Diets continues to be the definitive guide for parents, physicians, and dieticians wanting to implement this strict diet. This fifth edition has been extensively updated to reflect current advances in understanding how the diet works and how it should be used. Six new chapters address how to integrate the diet into all cultures, religions, and taste preferences, modified and less restrictive versions of the diet, and new information showing the benefits of the diet. This bestseller also includes sample meal plans, a food database, and much more"--Provided by publisher.
